Once a year, Food Bloggers from all over the world band together for a fundraising campaign called ‘Menu for Hope’. Last year, they raised over $90K for the UN World Food Programme, the United Nations international food aid organization.This year the charity raffle goes until the 24th of December. They explain:
“Menu for Hope again raises funds for the WFP’s school lunch program in Lesotho, Africa. This is the second year we are supporting this program, which assist the WFP’s efforts to supply the program by buying directly from local farmers who practice conservation farming methods. With this program, we help feed the kids (which keep them in school) and support their parents and community farming. This sustainable approach to aid is something we believe in and strongly support.”
Together they’ve whipped up a delectable list of amazing food related prizes for this raffle: Click here to view the list of all the prizes. Every US$10 donation will buy you one virtual raffle ticket toward a prize of your choice.
